I was nominated by Grant at http://sideways-glance.com/blog-2/ and I am very thankful and appreciative of being included. Thank you very much Grant! You really should check out his blog- Grant is a brilliant photographer and somewhat of a philosopher so it's always interesting.
I am somewhat new to this blogging thing so I am linking blogs that I enjoy. there's a mix of horse and photography and the just plain hilarious blogs in there:
sorry that I don't have 15, but there you have it.
I have two expensive hobbies: photography and riding. Both fulfill a need that I cannot adequately describe but are there. I cannot remember not wanting to be around horses. In fact when I was 3 my neighbour would deposit me at home with the admonishment to my mother that she really should keep me out of his horse pasture. Photography was long time interest that I finally decided to pursue and I am glad that I did.
When I was around 4 my parents separated and we had to move to the city so my mom could work. I hated it. In fact I would search out woods and spend a lot of time in there. I now live in the country and I cannot describe the satisfaction that gives me.
I am strongwilled- or stubborn. Depending on your point of view. I also value my independence and have a tendency to dig my heels in when confronted with ultimatums.
I am not sentimental but prefer to use logic and reasoning. This makes me seem 'cold' sometimes. I don't believe that I am cold but I can see how others would see it that way.
I am a good photographer but I am working towards being a really good one. I am also a good rider but desire to be perfect.
I love competition, I really do. I know that it's not viewed as womanly but there you have it. For me competition is about striving to beat myself- not everyone else.
Growing up my family thought that I was not that bright. In fact some members tried to discourage me from attending University. However, once I hit Uni I thrived and ending up paying my way almost exclusively with scholarships. It turns out that I am intelligent but that I struggled with the way that school presented the learning. This helped me to understand my son who seemed to have the same struggles I did. He's now in Military college and doing well.
